before the election, the candidates will be in wisconsin this week. today, republican mitt romney's campaign has an event in milwaukee. tomorrow, president obama will be in green bay. the volitility index, better known as the vix, may be signaling better days ahead. according to reports, a strategist at jpm morgan believes if the vix remains near current levels this week, it will mark a transition from crisis to normal time. his theory is if the vix stays around 16, the 52-week moving average will fall below the july 2011 level to its lowest point since february 2008. we asked a couple of options traders to weigh in, starting with scott bauer of trading advantage. "yes, i do believe that if we get through the crisis of these horrendous earnings we've been seeing over the past couple weeks and we stablize and stay in this range, i do think we will be back to what we call that normal trading range."

"west wing." >> unless he gets a surge that covers most of the states, it if he loses ohio and iowa or ohio and wisconsin, he has to run the table in everyone. >> you get confused unless you are i just keep trying to figure out the permutations. everybody agrees that the path is clear and simpler for obama and romney. it is ccbc the combination -- >> a lot of talk about potent
events in florida today and then in wisconsin tomorrow. mitt romney's done the same thing, cancelling events tonight and tomorrow. it's a difficult situation for candidates. of course, they both rin tinsley competitive. they want to win. president obama said i'm not thinking about the election. of course, he is thinking about the election all the time, so are his people. they know that or they believe that they have an advantage in battleground states and that perhaps the freezing of attention to the campaign will benefit them with a limited time to go. on the other hand, mitt romney can point to national polls and say i've gotten the upper hand since the first debate, so we will see whether the ground games get affected by this. obama's generally considered to have the more extensive and effective ground game. that, of course, is going to be tested on election day, but if some of that is interrupted, he and his people could be affected, and we'll see whether the early vote in places like north carolina, for example, where it matters some and florida is shaken up by this. >> and some
in virginia yesterday, and today he campaigns in iowa and wisconsin. if romney did become president we could see a very different type of hurricane response. earlier this season he said he would rather get rid of fema. he would rather second disaster relief back to the states and to privatize it. in reality taking services out of the public sector can actually second the government deeper in to debt. we have sene a little bit of that with the military contracting with the wars in the middle east, and cause issues with accountability and transparency. newt gingrich is making headlines again this morning for defending richard mourdock's comments about rapes. >> if you listen to what he said he said what virtually every catholic and fundamentalist in the country believes. he said that very decent american opposes rape and stephanie cutter should just get over it. more bill press is coming up live after the break, and we're in chat current.com/billpress. make sure that voting is your highest priority on election day. besides, you can always dvr my show. you really cant' dvr the
in the national horse race but this clear advantage for obama in ohio, in wisconsin, in the state that romney has to win to get to 270. and if romney is not going to be able to really go out there and press his case the next week and instead the next week dominated by president obama being the president, in a time of crisis, i do have a hard time, you know, it's a -- there's all sorts of, you know, as joy said, a katrina, blow up in obama's face politically that's possible but short of that i don't know what romney could proactively do in this environment to erase that? >> it is a historic storm and historic race and a moment in history. a lot of history in one sentence. thank you to ari, lawrence, joy and steve. you can catch steve on "the cycle" at 3:00 p.m. and, of course, you can and must catch lawrence -- >> oh, no. we're not so sure about that. we may not have power in the building at 10:00 p.m. >> you'll do it by candlelight because you're a good soldier. >> all right. >> the news never stops. let them have the last word at 10:00 on msnbc. see you back at noon eastern, 9:00 pacific joined
themselves in harm's way. >> mitt romney will visit ohio, iowa and wisconsin all states that could sway the election. >> turn over the evidence. they are increasing calls for the obama administration they are outraged they are staying quiet. listen to this. >> very good at touting and giving all of the details like when they got bin laden. but now we know there were tapes recordings inside the consulate during this fight and they have gotten -- they came when the fbi got in and quote top secret. >> republicans are politicizing the issue. >> is this tearrism 101. a new york university professor having students to plot a terror attack. professor helen maris asking students to write up 15 pages describing how they would do it and what the aftermath would be. she is a former navy criminal investigator defends the class saying it prepares students for a career in intelligence. some police officers are calling it an insult to those who died on 9-11. shocking details about the meningitis outbreak. health officials waited 6 days before they noted the public. they have back pain shots linked to

governor romney and republicans on taxes in a campaign event in wisconsin. >> you cannot erase what you have already done. they voted to extend tax cuts for the wealthy giving $500 trillion tax cut so 120,000 families. lou: that's a lot of money. 500 trillion. you have to love the vice-president, his view o things and, his expression. for a little perspective, the national debt is 16 trillion. we'll just leave it there. my next guest says there is no caseon economic grounds to raise taxes. joining me now, senior economic writer for the wall street journal, stephen moore, author of the new bok, the truth about opportunity, taxes, and wealth in america. great to have you with us. >> great to be with you. can i say something? this is really the problem in washington. you know, and it's not just joe biden. these politicians can't tell the difference between a billion and a trillion. the the numbers are so big now, everybody's eyes glaze over. a trillion dollars, million million. all lot of zeros. lou: and you know what, we, like you, cover these big numbers all the time. and i can't blame a
president obama right now is up by two and a half points. we are giving that to governor romney. see how this scenario plays out. the president would have to take the state of michigan where he is up by four points. let's give those 15 points to him. wisconsin where he is up by two. this is one of the most -- obviously one of the most important states. ohio where the president is up by two points in a pivotal, obviously as we have been talking about and will be talking about for 11 days, ohio critical. we will give that to the president. pennsylvania. the president is up five points. adding another 20 points to his electoral coun. new hampshire, those four points we are going to give. up by just one point. if thatere to happen, as you can see, 269-269, we have a time. so what do we do in the event that this occurs? by the way, this is entirely possible. let's go old school. back to the blackboard. and if no candidate receives a majority it triggers what is called a contingent, and there are, i assure you. it is seldom in the house of representatives, and in that case which is thepresiden
